Clashes continued in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron on Thursday following the fatal shooting of a Palestinian teenager overnight. Israeli troops shot the Palestinian teen dead on Wednesday evening after the youth threatened them with what appeared to be a pistol, but which may not have been a real weapon, according to police. Palestinian youth throw stones from behind burning tyres, with Israeli police retaliating with rifle fire and teargas. Meanwhile, the teen's funeral takes place elsewhere in the city. Violence between Israelis and Palestinians in the territory captured by Israel in a 1967 war has been on the rise in past weeks after a long period of calm. Two other Palestinians have been killed there in clashes with Israelis in the past month.
